Anglesey Barracks, comprising two rows of 11 dwellings, served as accommodation for some of the quarrymen who commuted to Dinorwic from Anglesey. They would spend the week based in the barracks working in the quarry, leaving their homes very early on Monday morning and returning to the island on Saturday afternoon.
Conditions were spartan. Each two-room unit had a living area with a fireplace and a sleeping area for four men. Facilities were scant — no running water, toilets or electricity, for example — and the workers had to bring all their week’s supplies with them when they arrived on a Monday.
Public-health inspectors closed down these barracks in 1948.
